Patrizia

palermo, Palermo, Italy

Hi! My name is Patrizia, I was born in Palermo where I have always been living, ever enjoying this gorgeous, cool and fascinating city, amazing for its history and culture.

I have always worked in Tourism, a subject that I studied at the high school. I also have a love for Languages and History and Traditions I developed during my studies, always one of my biggest passions.
I am mostly a cook and a guide as I deeply think that cooking is an important part of the culture of people, which reveals its history and roots, but also a way to enjoy life together too!
And then I am lucky to live in Palermo, because it is a big example of it, as it is a multi-ethical town, a city of Arts with a very ancient history.

So get ready, have one of our tours or come with me to buy the best local and just seasonal food, walk in the historical sites to discover an charming town, and go back home for cooking together and having your best local Lunch between a glass of wine and some Sicilian specialties.

I will welcome you in a nice charming home, with a true comfortable atmosphere, familiar and friendly as well, inside a building of the XVII century.
And I will be glad to be a part of your true authentic local experience in Palermo.
Because I love what I do.

Ciao!
Patrizia

A Recent Review of this guide

Palermo Private Street Food Tour with Patrizia was a lot of fun. She was "5 Star" & so personable. We felt like we were just walking the streets with a good friend. We saw 3 different outdoor food markets - each with their own uniqueness. The foods we tasted were varied & many we wouldn't have tried without Patrizia explaining them to us. Can now say we have tasted spleen :) . The reason we didn't give this tour a 5 star was because we didn't think the price reflected the value of what was received.
